As the weather warmed toward another summer

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

As the weather warmed toward another summer, it’s becoming an ordeal to walk under the grueling midday sun. And February has not even ended yet. Countries on the other side of the world are falling victim to flash floods, while the Philippines is increasingly threatened by the grave effects of an El NiƱo-induced drought: decreasing reservoir water levels that lead to power shortages in the south, farms drying up in the north, water shortage, decrease in harvests of rice and other cash crops, increase in food prices, and reduced economic growth for the country as a whole.
